Missing out on an award by a hair's breadth, MSI blew the other cards away in most departments. The software bundle sports an incredible 10 CDs with 20 applications and three full working recent games including Morrowind. It also sported blistering performance, coming in neck and neck with the award winning Leadtek 5900 Ultra.
The difference is in the price. At $1,100 the MSI is an investment to say the least. If the software and games appeal, that offsets some of the price – otherwise you can save $100 by going for the Leadtek A350 GeForce 5900 Ultra card.
